Tried this product as I play a lot of football and I think the product is very good! It helps reduce DOMS after football and especially the day after. Muscle soreness is reduced massively, however I tried the mint chocolate and the mint is far too strong and I've found it hard to stomach. I've only tried it with water ATM but it does mix very well!

New to shakes? read me !

I tried shakes a couple of years ago and they were just awful, the texture, the mix and the taste put me off for a long long time. Recently I got back into fitness and really struggled with the recovery in my legs which meant I struggled to train day after day. a friend recommended this product to me and I ordered it as an impulse buy but it then sat in my kitchen for a good 2 months (yes really, the old shakes really put me off) before I finally took the plunge as I needed to get fit for my wedding. I have to say I was pleasently suprised, I had the chocolate one and it smells and tastes like chocolate. It doesnt taste as nice as a mcdonalds milkshake so dont expect it to be a tast revoloution but it is enjoyable and after a few days you get used to the taste and they go down very easily. My legs now recover in just a few hours meaning I am able to jump on my push bike everyday without any stiffness or aces. Take it form someone who has always been very sceptical shakes that this one works !

Perfect for recovery

I suffer badly from lactic acid and went looking for something to help with it. Some of the previous reviews said this helps them so I took a punt. Currently feeling the numbness of a tough Cross-Fit Strength session last night, but no lactic acid at all. For this alone, I can't recommend it enough. I mix with a ~300ml milk and it mixes really well and tastes lovely. Strawberry and cream for me

Recovery XS

Excellent post work out recovery formula that gives impressive gains. I'm training for triathlon but still putting on muscle doing plyometric and body weight workouts, not pushing heavy weights. Tastes great (chocolate smooth), mixes well and is excellent value given the complex content. Definitely helps me train harder. Highly recommended.

Review of Recovary XS

This is my first time trying any kind of shake to help out with my fitness and cricket, badminton and football when I start my fitness in September I will see truly how effective this product is and how much it does for me at the moment I use for cricket and badminton. It does taste a little bit chalky but you get use to this within 2 weeks also good to use when making smoothies and using fruit and milk. So far I can see some difference when using this product but will hopefully see more and better results when I start doing more physical activity. When making smoothies add about 1 scope with a fruits and milk this will help aid recovery between the days you don’t do sports. also one con is that the packaging it comes in is very plain with no info about the product just how to take it. I would of liked some information on the product just like the website has.

Not impressed - too sweet

Was looking for something that would help me recover from my long runs. I chose this as it stated it had lots of products contained within the drink that would help muscles recover quickly. Tried the drink with water as suggested, but was unable to stomach it. Left me feeling very sick due to the over sweet taste from the sweeteners. It also left a powdery consistency even when shaken. I'm just about able to stomach it with milk (taste improved), although not something I would by again. Also quite filling if consumed before a meal.

Ok I'm training for the L2B bike race out here in brittany, and do running. bought some ZMA, Taurine and Omega3's. I bought the choc one years ago, didnt get on with the taste so tried strawberry this time round. Tried it with water first, overpowerfully artificial aftertaste, but it still worked noticable difference in recovery, actually felt supercharged the following day and to be honest as long a I have one of these badboys after a session I just want to get out there and smash next time!

Excellent!

This is the second time I've purchased recovery XS for my triathlon training because it tastes great, mixes well and gives outstanding results. For the 18 months prior to September 2013 I used MP impact whey and while this was great for gaining muscle I was always a little overweight. Within weeks of using recovery XS I was leaner than before without any muscle loss. It was part of my half marathon training in which I smashed my course PB by 35 minutes! I would highly recommend this to any endurance athlete. Yes it does cost more but it is definitely worth it.

Chalky taste but you can get rid of that by adding more water... By the way scooper you receive with this product only holds 30g of the powder (I always use my scales) so it's 3 headed scoops to get 90g not 2! Also, 400ml of water with 90g of powder on top almost fills my protein shaker to the point where it's impossible to mix so I get my 90g serving in 3 shakes (30g + 250ml water) each shake! Much easier and tastes nicer! Overall an ok tasting shake that definitely does the job it states! Great recovery from it! All good except the amount of power you need to use and the whole scoop mix up thing!

Excellent recovery drink, started doing crossfit and this massively helped my muscles recover, letting me workout daily. The effect was noticeable after just one day drinking it after a workout. Tastes good mixed with just water, though does take a lot of shaking including using blender ball. Have also tried using 1 scoop of recovery XS with 1 scoop of a more basic muscle-gain protein, and recovery was noticeably worse.

I feel strong after I've had one of these post-workout and fit feels like it's doing something. Cons: the chocolate one is much sweeter than previous shakes I've been on so will take some getting used to, lack of nutritional info on package

DOMs, what DOMs?

Nice product. Mixes well and tastes really good. Hard to assess just how much it helps recovery and reduces soreness but I can work out on several days on the trot (I alternate push and pull workouts) and find I have no difficulty with getting over any DOMs I may have from the day before last, if that makes sense. Before I started using Recovery XS I found not having a rest day inbetween training days much harder to deal with.

Good product but taste issues

There's a lot of powder for your money in this very large bag. I use to buy small sachets of High 5 recovery, but this works out a bit better. I normally mix it with semi-skimmed milk, and find that even with an electric whisk there can still be some small lumps of powder left. I've tried reducing the dosage of powder to milk and still have the same problem. This is also noticeable in the taste. While its smooth, creamy and definitely strawberry (my fave) there was still a hint of a powdery taste to it. This makes drinking 500ml hard for me as it starts to make me feel a bit sick. However, since using it, I've definitely noticed less muscle aches after all my events the following day. I do take it within 30mins or as soon as possible after a race. And it does seem to work. So I think its worth the slight sick feeling in my stomach to not have the pain in my muscles. Oh and I have found the powders quite thick and will coat things easily.. like clothes and hands if you spill it! Overall I'd rate this as a product that does what it says, but the powdery taste needs to be improved.

Fight training recovery

I am currently getting ready for my first Muay Thai fight after training hard for the past year. This stuff is Awesome ! I was looking to get a post workout drink that didn't put too much mass on (I need to stay at a set weight for my fight) but still tasted decent. Recovery XS tastes brilliant. I picked the chocolate smooth and have a generous two scoops with milk. No weight gain noticed but definitely just helps knit back together those bashed around muscles and adds to lean muscle development. If your training for any combat sport I would definitely recommend trying this stuff. Plus lets face it, pretty decent price for a protein shake that tastes good enough to look forward to.

I would always have this with milk (got the strawberry version) as with water it didn't taste quite right to me but mixed with approx 400ml milk it goes down a treat. There is a lack of flavour choice so that could be improved. Overall it is a good choice.

Good recovery

Straight after intensive sessions the Recovery XS shake helps, it's relatively easily mixed and tastes good compared to other shakes. Although there is a bit of a tangy taste left in your mouth. The next day felt a bit better than I would have normally, so effectively reduced recovery time. But obviously it depends on what exercise you're doing and what intensity you're working at. It does a good job though.

Recovery XS is absolutely superb in all honesty. I am recovering from a broken leg suffered around five months ago, and required a product that will give me protein and glucosamine in decent dosages that tastes nice. This product ticks all of the above boxes. My fitness isn't anywhere near to where I was pre-injury but it definitely makes the run a lot easier. It tastes so flipping good. I mix it up with a couple of bananas and ice cubs to give it a creamy texture; highly recommended with both water and fat free milk.

Does well

Recovery XS is good. You need a bit of adjusting to it in the beginning, but later you become used to the taste. It works well on my body, but I was maybe expecting a bit more. As a last word, It is not below my expectations. But probably just adequate. I will probably buy more once the current pack is over, provided I have a good discount offer again.

Spot On

I use Recovery XS after a big ride when I've been sweating more than normal or I have been pushing hard. Seems to work really well to aid my recovery. I even like the Choc flavor. Although when mixing with water it's an acquired taste. So I normally mix 1/2 water 1/2 milk and it tastes great then. Top Product.

I did a lot of research on what product to use post workout and opted for this Recovery XS. For me Recovery XS works well. I definitely notice the difference on recovery from hard workouts and cardio sessions. It has just what you need, all mixed in one product. It mixes quite well considering and doesn't taste too bad. I go for mint choc flavour.

Good taste

This Recovery XS is very good. The only thing I find is that it has a powdery taste when it is mixed up. I have tried using extra liquid and blending it in a blender but I do still get a slight powdery taste when mixing it up. Otherwise it's very good. I have chocolate smooth flavour and it certainly tastes like chocolate which is the important thing as I am a chocoholic.

Recovery XS

Having searched for a decently priced recovery shake to replace my preferred shake, I found this Recovery XS and decided to give it a go. Based on price and rate of consumption this mix is certainly worth it. I now use a blender to make my shake, but beforehand I used a shaker. It mixed well in the mixer with very little sediment, if any, left in the bottle. The flavour is very sweet, so perhaps a little less powder, or a dash more milk (which I use, though water can be used as well), might be preferred for those looking for refreshment. But, overall, it tastes good. I have found the effectiveness of this product to be to a high standard. Being a regular gym goer and runner, I required a product that would allow minimal fatigue/tightness/soreness of muscles worked, and I have found this product to do a very good job. I would recommend this product to the regular gym goer, or anyone that trains in any way on a regular basis.

I mostly drunk Recovery XS Strawberry Cream with water and it didn't taste as good as other shakes I've tried i.e. Impact Diet Whey and Elle True Diet, however, 100-150ml of milk (and a few ice cubes in the summer) makes massive difference, didn't have any issues with mixing it either, it definitely helped me to recover from hip flexor strain while still training, will definitely buy this product again if need be,

Works wonders!

I started Stronglifts (my first ever weightlifting at 27 years old) three weeks ago and have always been suffering the next day so I started using Recovery XS after the workout only and the next day I felt like I had missed a session! I didn't believe it at first and thought I must have got the weights wrong but skipped using it for a day just to test and felt awful again the next day. It seems too good to be true but it works. I bought Chocolate Smooth and it tastes great, it's not really sweet, just a good flavour although the texture is a little bit chalky when mixed with just water. I now mix it with water and semi-skimmed milk 50/50 and it's pretty smooth. I would like some more flavour options though for the next purchase, I'm not a fan of mint or strawberry!

I have used this Recovery XS now for three days and every time after a long cycle ride of 60 miles plus, the morning after I always suffer with sore lags but with taking the Recovery XS, they seem to be better and once back on the bike I can quickly get up to speed and feel good. I take it after the ride and then again at night just before bed, and it seems to work for me. The old legs have a chance of keeping up with the young lads in the club. It's a great product that I would recommend.

After a heavy workout I used to be wiped out the next morning and ache all day. Once I started using Recovery XS straight after my session it has made a massive difference. It still aches a bit but then it should if you've worked hard but I'm not wiped out anymore. The taste is ok (choc), I use it straight with water and I don't find it bad. I experimented with the amount to get to what I found right for me. It mixes well with a blender shaker. Good ingredients, good results what more can you ask for?

I was recommended Recovery XS by a friend who has been using this for a while as I had been discussing that it is taking me longer to recover from the gym / spin / cycling / running sessions (not as young as I used to be!). I haven't used supplements before have to admit that this is very good and has definitely aided the recovery from heavy / intense sessions! Taste is fine (it reminds e of my childhood and Nesquik milkshakes) and mixes easily!

Started using this about a year ago as I was struggling to recover for my next session. I use the recommended 2 scoops, mixing with approximately 500ml water. I am not too keen on chocolate yet the 'choc smooth' flavor is great--not too strong chocolate flavor but enough to make it appealing without being too sweet. Mixing is just fine--it has water insoluble ingredients so you have to give a quick re-shake after a session if you've made it beforehand. In terms of effectiveness, this has completely changed my ability to exercise hard. I swim 5 times a week and was struggling with muscle recovery even with a rest day in between sessions--strength and stamina just wasn't coming back or building--must be age or something. Starting using this and instantly noticed a difference, to such a degree that I was able to increase my exercise routine to include more while pushing harder in sessions without fear of being unable to go again the next day.

Everything you need

I have been running and cycling for years and have mainly stuck to the popular branded cycle recovery drinks which tend to be double the price of this Recovery XS. I have found Recovery XS excellent value and more effective than the other brands I have used. I am currently doing an Insanity training program to complement my standard fitness level and have found my recovery has been much improved with this. I have had the choc mint and also the strawberry cream, and both are nice although I prefer the choc mint personally. I have been using this with L Glutamine and also Thermopure and find the combination works very well. It's a great product.

I found mixing it first then leaving it in the fridge till after my workout much better as it settles on the bottom of the bottle but then the extra mixing before drinking makes it a much smoother drink.

Next time I will try plain vanilla or chocolate and I am sure I will be happier.
